As Gus so appropriately noted on his blog, this has been a ‘week from Hell’ [gusf]. Rainy, work’s busy, and everyone’s happy for 1 hour and grumpy for 23.
Last night I had another guinea pig treatment at Laura‘s work. So far over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had a hot rock massage, body polish, eyebrows shaped, eyelashes tinted, facial and makeup done. Yesterday was fantasy makeup so one of the girls expressed a lovely creation of hers on my face, she did a lovely job. When I got home John said it looked like Lucky Charms exploded on my face so I washed it off soon after.
I’ve honestly never been a girly girl – never had any regular spa treatments and if these sessions weren’t free there’s no way in hell I’d have any of this done. I’d much rather be able to afford food than worry about my nails that I chew to bits any way. I must admit though, I’m starting to like being their experimental face/body. I’m supposed to go back on Halloween after work to be someone’s “project”. That choice of words worries me as much as “fantasy makeup” did, I’m sure I’ll get totally pampered again and seriously, it’s just makeup, it’ll wash off… right?
